No Stone Left Unlearned: Armenian Tombstones of Philadelphia
Paul Vartan Sookiasian

While the traces of many of the city's old ethnic communities have disappeared over the decades, one vestige which remains to tell us about them are their tombstones. This presentation follows not just the evolution of the Philadelphia Armenian community's gravestones and their symbols over the past century, but also delves into the historical context of the period and the cultural traditions which these immigrants brought with them.

This is a virtual event.
